  1. The cover was drawn by my mother Anthea Asprey and the drawing is of my older sister Emma. It was from around 1974.

    1. hi Hannah, thanks for that very informative comment which completes the puzzle and gives life to the album cover. if i'm not wrong, one of the guitar players here was Jonathan Asprey and you must be related to him. talents run in your family's blood, if you don't mind me saying so. cheers!

  2. Hi friend, thank you very much...but...acid folk?

  3. This was a remarkable piece of music. I had the privilege of seeing the impact of the Fisherfolk on the Christian community in the 1970(s)in the UK and travelling to Houston to observe its roots. Moments never forgotten.

  4. Do you have the words of the song "On Tip-toe"? I loved this song, and I too, saw the fisherfolk in the 1970's.

  5. Thanks for this LP.
    I have the LP but nice to have it on a CDR as well.

    It's from 1975
